Do your kids love Halloween? Bring your little pumpkins to one of these family-friendly events—they'll get to wear their costumes!
Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (running through November 1). At Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, guests can trick-or-treat, catch the "Boo-to-You" Halloween parade or Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular, and stay for the bewitching "Happy HalloWishes" fireworks.
Hersheypark In The Dark (Fridays to Sundays in October) At this theme park in central Pennsylvania, kids ages 12 and under can stroll through 13 stops of the Trick-Or-Treat Trail to get pieces of Hershey’s candy. Plus, there are flashlight tours of ZooAmerica, entertainment, and 13 coasters to ride, including the park's funhouse-themed indoor coaster, Laff Trakk. During October, the ride on Laff Trakk will be in darkness.
SeaWorld's Halloween Spooktacular (select days through October 29 in Orlando and San Diego) Kids can show up in costume and take part in trick-or-treating in the park. In Orlando, families will enjoy a Halloween dance party and Sesame Street’s Countdown to Halloween show while the San Diego location features a Halloween-themed sea lion and otter show. The events are included in park admission; one child ages 3 to 9 gets in free to the San Diego location in October when a full-price adult ticket is purchased.
